Did you know that FCCPS participates in partnerships with 500+ businesses, non-profits, government agencies and individuals?
The Directory of Community Partnerships includes recognition of partnerships over the past 4 years. We encourage everyone throughout Falls Church to show appreciation for the generosity of these partners. Support the businesses that are committed to our schools. Shop there. Eat there. Recommend them. Thank them. Most are small businesses, and if we want to be able to rely on their backing, we need to support them as well.
